Alanna's Birthday

I'm so late with my blogging!! Here is Alanna's birthday party from back in May!! She wanted a cowboy party. It was lots of fun with her best buddies. I made them all vests, made Alanna and Arya skirts, and then got everyone hats and bandannas. It's so great to be a kid!!

Pretty Dresses

A friend of mine, Amy, was due to have her third child, so her mother-in-law came to visit and help her and her family. She stayed for a few months because she came all the way from Ecuador. Amy told me what an amazing seamstress she was and I have seen some of her work, but she didn't tell me how angelic this sweet woman is!

In my experience, there are few people I have met that will do anything for another person. I think most people would like to think they would, but in truth, I think most people have their limits as to what they would do for another person. Anyway, I met Amy's mother-in-law and got to know her very briefly. She is one of the most unselfish, kind, and caring people I have met. (No wonder Amy and her husband are such kind people; they have great examples!!)

Before she went back to Ecuador she made my little girls these beautiful dresses. She made them from scratch without a pattern or without seeing my girls. She knew about what size they are and just whipped up these dresses. They both love them. I wish I would have taken a photo of the back; the bows on these dresses are amazing. I am so grateful for Christ-like people in my life and the example they show to me of how I can be a better person by giving of myself with no thought of reward.
